I really loved this book and I knew I would since I loved Zack in Alex's book. My heart broke for Zack and Kate - both have them have been to hell and back and just deserved some peace. I was rooting for them so much!
I don't really have much to say about this book - I loved the characters, loved the storyline (it was very tastefully done!) and this author is amazing. I can't wait to read the other books in the series!

I absolutely loved the first book in this series and this book was no different. It felt like an extended epilogue to me, actually - which is cool. We get to see what happened to all of the Reeds and Emily and Logan are reunited. Yay!
I despise Trip, he was such a jerk. And Emily's father really made me angry! He redeemed himself though, which isn't always the easiest thing to do in my eyes!
Happy Ever After's all around! Love, love, love.
I can't wait to check out Pete's book - it's going to be good, I can tell. I love these Reed brothers, they have seriously wormed their way into my heart.

I really liked this book - I loved Brody and all of Kacie's friends (Alexa and Lauren are AMAZING!) and the children are adorable! I loved Kacie's mom as well - she's a hoot! However, I absolutely could not stand Kacie. Other than her undying love for her children, I have no clue what Brody saw in her. She was annoying and idiotic - I found myself wishing I could slap her with this book to get her to wake up! I understood that she has been scarred by the past and she was trying to guard herself BUT then she shouldn't have bothered with Brody in the first place if she was that scared. Right? Right.
The storyline was good, I loved it, the book didn't dawdle at all. Although, if I could have continued reading about Brody I wouldn't have cared if it carried on a bit longer! Such a sweet, romantic, man. He's everything all wrapped up in nice package. Pun intended.
Will I be reading the next book? I'm not quite sure yet. I really did love Brody but I don't know if I can deal with Kacie again... time will tell!

While reading the first few pages I wasn't sure I was going to like this book - Logan was very graphic in his description of Kit/Emily and I thought he was going to be such a pig. I am so glad I continued reading because he's not like that at all - with Kit, anyway.
I loved Kit/Emily and Logan - they were such a cute couple, I loved reading as their relationship blossomed. So adorable! And I have to admire Kit/Emily for not giving into her parents demands and wanting to live her own life, not everyone has the strength to do what she did.
I am in love with the entire Reed family - I love the dynamics and how they are all there for each other. It's so nice to see!
I am currently writing this review with a huge smile on my face as this book just made me so happy. I enjoyed reading it so much and it truly hurt me to have to put it down and have to deal with real life. It really did.
Love, love, love this book. I can't wait to read the next one!

This book was really more of a 3.5 star than a 4 star but I'm rounding up because I truly enjoyed Liam Wilder. Liam was sexy, funny and an all-around "good" guy. He treated Kinsley right and wasn't afraid to go after what I wanted. You kind of have to admire the guy for that at least, right?
My feelings for Kinsley were mixed. I tried so hard to like her and sometimes it worked. Other times, I wanted to stop reading because she was so childish and annoying with her thought process. I just wanted to yell at her and tell her to grow up! I know her character is only 19 but she's in college, she's not a baby. She's old enough to have sex so she should be adult enough to deal with a lot of other things.
I absolutely loved Becca - I hope there is a book about her and Penn. She cracked me up! And I loved her footsie pajamas. Then again, who wouldn't?
The reason I am not giving this book a higher rating is something is lacking from within its pages. The writing was good, the characters were enjoyable, the plot was interesting but something was missing to give it a higher rating. I have no idea what it is so if someone figures it out, please let me know!

Let me start off by saying how much I truly adore Whitney Gracia Williams. I have read a few of her books now and every single one of them has been great. She is an extremely talented author!
This book had me from the first line! Seriously - the first line!
"New York City is nothing more than a shit-filled wasteland, a dump where failures are forced to drop all their broken dreams and leave them far behind."
How can anyone NOT want to read a book with a line like that? This books starts off at 90mph and doesn't stop for a long time! I felt like the tempo of the book was perfect, it moved quickly but not too quickly and it didn't dawdle at all. Very intriguing!
Andrew was a lot of fun to read - I just love his character for some reason. He was definitely flawed and did things that weren't necessarily fair (in our opinions, anyway) but his circumstances more than make you understand why he does what he does. My heart ached for him at the end of the book and I actually felt bad for cursing him every time he did something mean to Aubrey.
Aubrey - I loved her. She too was flawed but she was a strong heroine and that's what I enjoyed about her. She was a doormat for so long that once she decided she had enough she stuck with it! I was so proud of her every time she told her parents and Andrew off!
And of course lets not forget the hotness that is in this book! Yummy Andrew plus wonderfully written sexy time = pure win!!
I loved the ending; happily ever after books always warm my heart. It makes me feel like the book comes full circle when the end happens that way. I would definitely read another book about this couple if the author decides to write one - I love this couple together, so much.
